So Much Time, so little to do

A wracking wrap of cough
speaks volumes in quiet candor
usurping the energy 
that drones within.

Each breath a sigh in stifled
sugar coat, sponging for
expansion in the heaviness of doubt.

Moments tick as hours in glasses,
gazing at memory of work
to be done in a matter of time.

Restless staring seeks the
solace of drawn blinds, honeycomb couch
with feverish arm rests.

A lone tear is released
and trickles to tightened lips
that part to breathe.
The tongue perceives the salt
upon the bitter buds.
